Florian Mueller reporting on the lift and why it is actually a good thing for everyone:

As odd as it may seem, I think that even Apple should actually welcome (even if not publicly) this ruling. Cupertino looks like a loser today, but if that injunction had been upheld, the underlying legal standard, which was just too low, would have come back to haunt Apple down under. In fact, Samsung is asserting patents against various Apple products and requested a preliminary injunction against the iPhone 4S.
